Dire Destraction by Dee Davis

Book Description:

As the commander for A-Tac, a black-ops CIA unit masquerading as Ivy League faculty, Avery Solomon is the best of the best. He'll stop at nothing to ensure the safety of his team, but when a mystery from the past resurfaces, he puts himself directly in the line of fire.

After years of covert missions, Avery harbors regrets that continue to haunt him. He still blames himself for his wife's death fourteen years ago-until an A-Tac operative finds a photo that suggests Avery's wife may still be alive. Determined to discover the truth, Avery heads deep into the hostile territory of Southeast Asia, ready for danger and violence-only to find himself captured by desire . . .

Wilderness guide Sydney Price never backs down from a challenge. She has her own reasons for wanting revenge against the men being hunted by Avery. Though she tries to deny her attraction to the tough, handsome warrior, the spirited Sydney soon finds him impossible to resist. Now she and Avery must work together to uncover the truth-and stay alive. But as the enemy closes in and old secrets unravel, the line between partners and lovers vanishes like mist in the jungle . . . 

My Thoughts:
This one was good.  A-Tac has been trying to thwart the bad guys but they always seem one step ahead of them.  Avery is their leader and has a painful past.  When one of his team finds evidence that his wife might still be alive, Avery charges in to find the truth.  Sydney has been in deep cover for several years and now her assignment is to help Avery.  Though she isn't given any details, she can't resist helping him once she meets him. 
I liked that Avery was completely devoted to his wife.  When she was alive that was it for him and he'd held her close all those years.  That devotion was a great thing to see.  Sydney was in a tough position through the company then with her feelings toward Avery.  It would have been different if the mission hadn't involved his wife but the fact that it did and that both of them had feelings for the other could have made it awkward but the author did a good job of making it not.  I loved the storyline and seeing all the previous characters from the A-Tac group.
I rate this a 4/5.  I really enjoyed Avery's book!
